How do you find the product of #(5c^3d)/(c^4d)*(f^2d^3c)/(10cf^4)#?
This is all one big term with number and variable factors.
Cancel the numbers
#(cancel5c^3d)/(c^4d) xx (f^2d^3c)/(cancel10^2cf^4)#
Multiply the numerators and multiply the denominators by adding the indices of like bases to give one fraction:
- Divide by subtracting the indices of like bases so that the indices are left positive. (Big - small)
